"...a following sea is the one you have to watch out for. It's the one that comes up behind a vessel. You don't see it coming. It hits you from behind and swamps a you. Sinks you. The rule is that if you're running in following sea, you've just got to be moving faster than they are. Stay ahead of them." - Michael Connoly, 'Blood Work'
Great, right? The commonality of The Following Sea, a wave of a metaphor we have all been hit with in one way or another.
In that spirit, The Following Sea is an interactive installation looking under the rock and using humor, community, and lots of vellum tags and glass bottles to get the conversation rolling on the shit storm that is illness and truama. It is an opportunity to say something about my experience with illness and where I invite the you to do a little bit of the same.
